Did you go garage sailing (my personal fancy name for it) this weekend? You know what they say: One man’s trash is another man’s treasure …. well, we found some great treasures this weekend, and I thought I would share our haul.
We spent a total of $4.50 and got the following (shown): A cute little metal bucket/tin for my daughter to put her hair bows and clips in, an Easter Tree (yea, I know… not so necessary, but this was my daughters pick and she loves it!) and then my son picked out a really neat brand new/unopened game called Big World Atlas that actually looks really neat, and retails for $25 on Amazon here. He was also super excited to get a new ball pump (because you can never have enough of these when you are an 8 year old boy who loves every kind of ball, and can never find a ball pump when you need one!) and then I also let them each pick out a book:
My family enjoys going to garage sales together for many reasons. For one, it has been wonderful in teaching my children the value of a dollar. It has also helped them to understand not only saving and spending, but has also shown them that we can get creative as a family because we often discover old things that we can make new again, like this candle holder that we repurposed into a fish bowl last year.
What great garage sale finds have you found lately?
